to make cuts that are coherent than at the level of the entire pentagon. the more discretion you give the white house, the easier these cuts might go. so senator republicans of that said, we're willing to give you that discretion. house republicans are gearing up to pass legislation along those lines as well. the thing is that senate democrats are not going to go along with it and the president doesn't want to go along with it. if the president has that discretion to see to it those cults don't have such disastrous effects then the president actually owns the cuts that he actually has to make. so partly there's a pass the buck dynamic going on here as well. >> let me jump through this quickly on one quick question. if, in fact, this does not -- the sequester comes through and the economy gets into trouble, next year we go to the midterm votes, do you think voters will look back and say, it was the republicans' fault? or do you think by then it will be the usual equation of, you're the party in charge, democrats, the economy's failing again, it's your fault, you pay? what do you think?
and the u.s. is taking the test very seriously. let's bring in barbara starr. live at the pentagon. this test is wore i sor woresom. >> one of the biggest problems right now is whether or not north korea really has achieved a miniaturid bomb. they say they set off a smaller, more lethal explosive, if you will. miniaturization is key. that means they could possibly put a small war head on a missile sooner than expected and deliver it to a target. now the cia, pentagon, all has to look at this to determine what they set off and essentially now work backward. if it was a miniaturized bomb, what did it take north korea to get there? where did they get the technology, the engineering, the expertise, the money to do it? they will look at what it would have taken north korea to achieve what they say they achieved and try to figure out how they did it and who might have helped them. zoraida. >> has theyou say there. there has been of skepticism in where this program is right now. >> the u.s. has been skeptical for years. in december, they successfully launched a long-range ballistic missil
bit late. he first had to be sworn in for his job as secretary of defense at a private pentagon ceremony. that step coming after a pretty tough confirmation fight in the senate. a round trip mission to mars is in the works. it's to send a man and woman to fly by the red planet in 2018. the mission would be a 501-day mission. it's the brainchild of dennis tito. if you remember that name rmgs he was the first space tourist. tito is holding a news conference a couple of hours from now. >>> even after 11 days on the witness stand, jodi arias's story continues to change. it is a remarkable murder case, a trial you don't seem to be able to turn away from. we're covering it next. humans -- sometimes life trips us up. and sometimes we trip ourselves up. but that's okay. at liberty mutual insurance, we can untrip you as you go through your life with personalized policies and discounts when you need them most. just call... and speak with a licensed representative about saving on your policy when you get married... move into a new house...

-bye. and that is precisely what the defense secretary did today in his farewell ceremony. this is just outside the pentagon. he spoke about his challenges his replacement must face. >> you're going to have to continue to deal with rogue states like iran and north korea. we just saw what north korea has done in the last few weeks. a missile test and now a nuclear test. they represent a serious threat to the united states of america. we have got to be prepared to deal with that. >> deal with that, he says. panetta has been leading the pentagon for the last 18 months. but he's been in public service for the last five decades. >>> live this hour, big moment for chuck hagel, the man president obama would like to become the next secretary of defense. the senate armed forces committee holding a vote on hagel's nomination. and while it is likely he will be confirmed, several republicans, they're still putting up a fight. that happens this hour. >>> also, cereal and soda? pepsi introducing a new mountain dew drink for, dare i say, breakfast, calling it kick start. the company says it doesn't consider this an energy

at the pentagon in alexandria, virginia. hagel expected to make remarks later this hour. >>> police released photos wanted for questioning, they say 22-year-old tanesha howard was inside a black suv when shots were fired. her mother says the suspected shooter is the young woman's boyfriend. >>> the star of an iconic anti-smoking ad has died. >> they say nicotine isn't addictive. how can they say that? >> debi austin became famous to are this commercial warning others about the dangers of cigarette smoking. she died friday after a long bat well cancer. >>> the college admissions test known as the s.a.t. is getting a makeover. the college board says the new test will focus more on knowledge and skills high schoolers need to succeed in college. no word on when students will begin taking the new test. >>> talk back today, is it right for dennis rodman to be in north korea? facebook.com/carolcnn or tweet me @carolcnn. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get informat
, actually the budget in the pentagon is still going to go up. do republicans risk not being seen as credible? >> i think everybody risks not being seen as credible. this more than many of the crises that we've seen congress and the white house deal with. on that particular issue of republicans in defense, i find it fascinating. i spoke with senator cornyn as some of my colleagues up here about that. and what he was saying is that he was trying to try out his message on us about the fact that republicans should in fact not be saying that the sky's going to fall with regard to defense, it has historically been the most important thing when it comes to budget for the republicans because even if these forced cults go into effect, overall defense spending will go up. there's a split among republicans. if you ask john mccain that, he'll say do not touch defense spending, you to do away with forced cuts. there definitely is what this is exposing is a real tug-of-war within the gop over one of the main goals which is getting rid of the deficit and debt and that means reduce spending everywhere and h
is "usa today's" pentagon reporter. he wrote the article. welcome. >> good morning, carol. >> thanks so much for enlightening us on this issue. this program sends americans to iraq and afghanistan to win hearts and minds. tell us about sexual harassment, racism. outline these problems for us. >> these come in an army investigative report that we were -- we obtained through a freedom of information act request. the harassment seemed pretty gross. it was a contractor at the training base making really untoward comments toward the women. eventually, he was fired. that was documented. as well as racism. there was a white soldier who was referring to a section of the program and saying it was a ghetto because it had black people in it. that soldier was disciplined. >> yet some of the members of this group, with all the problems, were making more money than the secretary of defense? >> that's the most disturbing problem. it regards time sheet padding, and it was encouraged, apparently, according to the documents we found. these people were saying they routinely worked 84-hour weeks, billing f
spending as well as in the pentagon and there are a lots of people on both sides of the aisle for different reasons who believe, you know what, that's not such a terrible thing. so the default setting, despite what we heard about the tsa lines and all the rest, may be pretty palletable to some. and it shows you how far the dysfunction in washington has come since they came up with this plan a couple of years ago. >> now, on the dysfunction angle, look, the last time we talked about something sort of similar was fiscal cliff in december, the last congress. now we have new members of congress. my question now is how is the republican party different? >> well, this is the most interesting part of this. i think the white house made a calculation when this whole idea was hatched that the republican party would never go for draconian cuts on military spending. and what occurred in the republican party is that you have a group of younger members who believe in budget cutting above all else, and are willing to take the hits in the pentagon so long as you get hits in domestic spending and so long as
, the pentagon has grounded the entire fleet of f-35 fighter jets. a crack was found in the engine of one of the planes during a routine inspection. $400 billion, the f-35 program is the most expensive weapons system in military history. >>> five, now with no deal in sight, we are six days away from forced spending cuts that will slash $85 billion in spending and the white house is putting pressure on republicans. >> the here is the thing. these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. they can pass a balanced plan for deficit reduction. they can cut spending in a smart way and close wasteful tax loopholes for the well-off and well-connected. unfortunately, it appears that republicans in congress have decided that instead of compromise, instead of asking anything of the wealthiest americans, they would rather let these cuts fall squarely on the middle class. >> that's the argument from the president. here is is how the gop is firing back. >>> the fact is republicans in congress right now will provide the flexibility to make the necessar

in the action, so to speak. but the pentagon has to deal with congress, with republican lawmakers and won't this affect their relationship? >> of course not. this is always transaction. as it happens for the last 70 or 100 years. whatever of the things, hagel was a senator, he understands how the place works how he's got three people that can help him because the president doesn't like dealing with the senate very much. who can blame him now he's got joe biden, john kerry and chuck hagel all skilled with dealing with the senate and that will be helpful for him moving through. >> you know, carol, this is one of the reasons why it's so problematic for republicans. and rich is right that there have been some holds and some there be something like this in the past. but we're in a very different place right now. and the reasons that they are stating as to why they are against chuck hagel do not pass muster. >> right. >> the american people are sick of petty politics in washington. this is a president, he has said he's willing to meet the republicans halfway. we have yet to see the halfway that
to severe cuts to the pentagon. you see just four states there including georgia and virginia which could lose more than 100,000 jobs each over the next ten years. cuts in grants to the states could lead to big reductions in food aid to the poor, low income energy assistance, child care and development and other social services as well. and really this is only the start. again, ten days left at this point. >>> now, we want to bring you some of the hottest stories of the day in a flash. we're keeping an eye on the jodi areas trial. she admits to the gruesome killing of travis alexander. late this morning her attorney began to lead arias through the weeks before the brutal killing. arias read an angry text from travis about a drawing that he had done which she left behind. >> imagine if i did that to you with something you gave me. give me a pardon from any madness. i don't need it. it's wearing me out and if it continues, just like i have to give you motivation to tell me the truth, i'll give you motivation to quit screwing with me. >> arias has given multiple versions of the killings. she
% of the pentagon's budget over the next seven months. are you feeling it yet? here's what's not being targeted, social security and medicare, medicaid and food stamps and military personnel and the veterans administration, clearly frustration is building against congress and the white house. >> i think it's time for the president to show leadership. the reality is he's been engaged in almost non-stop campaigning trying to scare the american people, trying to scare now states and others. >> -- has there ever been more of a time when government was more intrusive than it is today and to the point it is really psychotic. something's wrong. my kids could go find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget. this is not rocket science. what this is, is an inability to want to get to work. no one should be going home. no one should be playing golf, no one should be taking vacations. what they need to do is do what these governors do every day. we stay well we get it done. >> president obama will hear some of that anger firsthand when he visited the hampton roads region of virginia. defense spending makes
